The opposite of love is apathy, not hate. So it only makes sense that Jesse James is still madly in love with Sandra Bullock, given that he consistently bashes her in every possible medium. His latest slam happened on American Chopper, where James said, “I became a big shot and married some Hollywood actress and didn’t talk to anybody anymore, so I feel bad. . . I feel obligated to reconnect with all these people and show ’em that I’m still the same fabricator motorcycle guy. I’m not what I became.” It’s amazing he was married to that “Hollywood actress” for years, and now he flippantly dismisses her. With all that animosity you’d think she was the one that cheated. Watch the video after the jump. Continue reading “Jesse James Disses Sandra Bullock on ‘American Chopper’ — Still in Love?”
For those that know me personally, you might have heard me discuss some of my many, insane phobias (they are endless). One such phobia is a man’s nipples. I don’t know their purpose, and I try not to even look at them for fear of being repulsed. In fact, if I touch a man’s nipple during [insert activity here] — it’s traumatic. So why am I using this blog as a personal journal, instead of remaining professional as the “online journalist” that I am? Because Kat Von D and Jesse James are re-engaged, and Von D posted a twit-pic of her and James kissing — with James’ shirt off. You’ll have to see it to understand why I will lose sleep for years.

Allow me to start this post by saying I’ve been in a lot of relationships with total douchebags, and I still don’t discuss the full extent of their douchebaggery. Why? — Because I’m a lady — and I have some class. And since I’m certain Sandra Bullock is nowhere near the douchebag that my exes were, can someone please explain what exactly is wrong with Jesse James? In a recent interview with Piers Morgan, James implied that Bullock was insincere about her love for him. When asked about Bullock’s public claim that her work improved after they met, James said that she “gave that speech at four different awards shows.” If that’s true, then why did he sit in the audience in his monkey suit with tearful eyes while accepted her Oscar? Here’s the bottom line: divorced or not, there’s a certain level of respect that you give the people you spent part of your life with. There’s a code — and he’s broken it.
Jesse James stopped by Howard Stern today to promote his new book, American Outlaw, and true to form, Howard Stern made me like Jesse James. James shed light on his marriage, saying that he and Bullock were having problems, and their adopted son brought them closer together. Though James hadn’t cheated for 11 months at the time his affairs were revealed, Bullock left him immediately after she learned of his infidelity. He said that most normal marriages might have survived, but Bullock was under media pressure to dump him, and she caved. He also revealed his issues with Bullock’s acting career, saying that he found her naked movie scenes “weird,” especially since she was involved in the production process, and she was hand-picking the hottest actors to co-star with. He said he felt as if he was “in a box” during the course of their relationship, because he was unable to behave the way he normally would, given that he was so concerned about ruining his wife’s image in the press. My only major issue with the interview was at the end, when Howard Stern asked James who was better in bed, and he called it a “no-brainer,” saying that Kat Von D is 100% better. That might be true, but some things are better left unsaid. Damn you Howard Stern for making me like Jesse James again. Stern could make a tub of goo look like a diamond necklace.
Jesse James is set to write a tell-all book, and rumors are circulating that Sandra Bullock is furious. When word first broke of Jesse James’ affair, I was floored, and I thought he’d immediately start the career-cleanup process. He remained under the radar throughout his entire Sandra Bullock relationship, and it wasn’t until he appeared on Celebrity Apprentice that I thought he might be fame-hungry. Judging from how he’s handled their split, and what he’s done since, I’m guessing he’d rather torch his public image than save it. After all, if everyone’s staring at you, why not put on a show for them? This memoir is just another reason to hate him. If he writes about his marriage to Sandra, then he’s capitalizing on her fame, and if he doesn’t — the book disingenuous and pointless.
What’s the shelf-life on using social media to flaunt your new relationship after cheating on your ex-wife? Not only has Jesse James used twitter to declare his love for Kat Von D, but he’s also made an official engagement announcement, saying that 2010 was the “best year of his life.” First, if it’s true that the year your marriage fell apart because of your infidelity was in fact your greatest year, keep it to yourself. There’s no need to tell the entire world (which includes your ex-wife). Second, using twitter to write sweet nothings to your new lady is completely inappropriate. Just ask Leann Rimes. It’s too soon — and tacky.
I have no idea why this didn’t occur to me earlier. Jesse James allegedly approached Barbara Walters for his image clearing interview, and she turned him down out of loyalty to Sandra Bullock. I noted in my previous post that I thought the interviewer that he chose, Vicki Mabrey, came off as judgmental and certainly didn’t help him plead his case. At the time, I thought that he should have chosen Babs, but now I realize that Babs rejected him!
Jesse James had sat down with Nightline tonight, and with the exception of the judgmental Vicki Mabrey, it was a good interview. He explained that he cheated because he was out to “sabotage his life.” He also admitted that he went to rehab to deal with sex addiction, his abusive childhood, and his anger issues. Oh and about those Nazi pictures – he adopted a black baby so that pretty much answers that question. Oh wait – he couldn’t give that answer, so he instead said that it was a stupid joke that got blown up because it was released in the midst of this cheating scandal. The most revealing part of the interview was when he said that he never felt “good enough.” That would certainly explain why he downgraded so heavily with his affairs. I can’t figure out why I forgive Jesse James for this and yet I think Tiger Woods is the biggest piece of shit on the planet. What’s the difference? Both cheated with disgusting women, and both pretended to have perfect marriages in the press. Hmm…perhaps because I don’t think Tiger Woods is actually sorry. Who knows.
Jesse James agreed to an interview to “set the record straight,” and unfortunately, he chose a judgmental woman to do the interview. I realize it’s better for him to be interviewed by a female, given that a man (such as Matt Lauer) might high-five his pussy conquests mid-interview, but wouldn’t it have been better to choose someone a little less angry? Judging from the clip, Vicki Mabrey is one step away from asking the question pervading her mind – “What the fuck is wrong with you Jesse James!?” Thankfully, it appears that she bit her tongue before her head exploded. Barbara Walters would have been the obvious choice, but since she’s recovering from heart surgery, I imagine he chose what he thought was the second-best option. Watch the clip below and tell me if you agree.
I have to give props to People magazine for conducting one of the best interviews I’ve ever read. It’s beautiful, heart breaking, and honest. You must read it in its entirety, but here are some excerpts.
On filing for divorce
Yes, I have filed for divorce. I don’t know what else to say. I’m sad, and I am scared.
On whether she knew Jesse cheated prior to the tabloid story
Ah, the inevitable question. I had no idea about anything until that day when I got the call.
On the Nazi photos of Jesse
The photo shocked me and made me sad. This is not the man I married. This was stupid, this was ignorant.
On whether she’ll stay in his children’s lives
I don’t want to know what life is like without those kids.
On her relationship with Jesse now
It’s one of new understanding. One of forgiveness. One of support for his recovery. One that changed my life.
On whether Jesse will play a role in her child’s life
The father that I’ve known Jesse to be with all the kids is one that I hope Louis can experience one day.
On the first time she met her son Louis
It was like the whole outside world just got quiet. He was so small, so still. All the trivial things that I had allowed to take up so much of my time just didn’t have room in my life anymore.
